The pre-release pictures looked ridiculous but it looks ok in-game

I'm in the office today so my foray into AE gameplay will have to wait until tomorrow when I can finish my last 4 tiers in FL. I played 11 games yesterday with the booster on and amassed 26 levels in those game and some 4.5 mil credits :great:

 

I have been waiting for some reviews of it in here to wet my appetite though

The only thing you need to know... is that it feels like the old Conq "pre rof nerf and turret plates", that is a tiny bit slower.

The main question would be how does it compare to the amx m4, since i feel like that is the best tier 9 heavy.

Depends on what you like I guess. In the open the AE hull is trash vs. Lower plate is lot less effective. Everything pens you there. Hulldown they both have about the same effective armor more or less on the turret. But AE has -10 and, a bit more dpm and pen, and a lot more gold pen with HEAT. I pushed forest on Murovanka one game and no issues bouncing even on the upper hull poking up. 

 

Tho side is 60 vs 88. So it's not terrible at holding a corner. But I thought that circle on the hull would be an issue. But turns out it's 177 at the front, 101 in the middle and 77 at the rear. So holding a corner at the right angle, that "dome" is 500 to 300mm effective.

So what you are all saying is they made a hull down-hard to pen-great dep-tank with really strong """"special"""" rounds...at least it is something new.

Saw 2 in a battle just now....1 on each team on Prok. Ours did an average job, getting 2 kills and 1700 dmg, while the enemy AE bizarrely never joined the game and was killed at the end having never moved from his spawn position. Guess it was a connection problem, as the guy was from a very Famous Clan.

I did just look that up now. He did play it rather aggressive in the open to test the armor and got punished for it hard each game when he got flanked. Resulting in a rage quit to play the 279 E. 

 

I did see Circon play it a few rounds after he got his. He had a mirrored early opinion.

Can anyone confirm if you keep your max Combat Reserves after prestiging up to 10? Or do you have 1 CR at lvl 1?

And whether you can now exchange all of your prestige points for gold or just, as was the initial case, those left over after exchanging them for tanks.

Saw a few of them. Most did rather well, I must say. Going to get mine as soon as I can be bothered to finish the FL grind. I am at level 9. Two more sessions of 2 hours should do it, but I am not in any kind of hurry.

Once you get to Prestige X. You get 30 points to spend on combat reserves again.

I used up all of mine. But it still says "exchange will be available in later episodes" under the reward tanks with the padlock icon on it.

yeah I'm undecided. I think you can get the Emil and AE with all the points (afk) but I would rather have the AE and 300g x (those Points left 12??) but then.......

Emil and AE do indeed cost all the points earned. Either way you can only afford two tanks. And if you pick one of... or both of the first two tanks. Then you have points left over.
